So after over two months of silence Hello Games have come out and announced an update coming to No Man's Sky this week.
There isn't a lot of information. They call it a foundation patch and detailed patch notes should be coming soon.

EDIT: The patch is available now. You can see the full patch notes here.
And here's a video with all the details on the patch:
